We are dedicated to reducing health disparities in local and global communities with
an unwavering focus on social justice. Our mission is to promote the health and well
being of local and global communities through education, service, and research with
a focus on underserved populations. This mission is achieved by employing a multidimensional
program of study that combines a broad public health base with specific training in
two specialty concentrations: Community Health and Global Health.
The Program plans to offer a new concentration in Health Equity and Criminal Justice (HECJ) in Fall 2019. Effective Fall 2018, HECJ is currently available to students as an emphasis within the Community Action for Health Concentration. This spring, the Program will offer the first course in the HECJ Emphasis and proposed HECJ Concentration: PBHC 633: Criminal Justice and Public Health, which will provide students with an overview of the intersection between the criminal
justice system and public health.
